Mohamed Elneny’s agent says they’re currently working on renewing his Arsenal contract, which is the player’s first-choice option this summer.

After helping Arsenal through to the Europa League quarter-finals with an excellent goal, Mohamed Elneny has put himself back in the good books of the supporters recently.

Elneny was linked with a move to Turkey last year, with the same links resurfacing recently, but his agent says those are still just rumours. For now, the player is actually still prioritising and working on a renewal with Arsenal.

“Leaving to the Turkish league is among the rumours surrounding Mohamed Elneny,” Alan Nazmy admitted (via Yallakora). “The player has a season left on his contract, and we are currently working on renewing the contract.

“The player’s ambitions are to continue (with Arsenal), after earning the confidence of his coach Arteta. This is his first choice.”

The decision clearly isn’t made just yet, however. Elneny’s agent went on to add that they have received offers for a transfer and the midfielder could still end up staying or going in the summer.

“There are several offers for Mohamed Elneny,” Nazmy continued. “In the coming period, things will be decided, whether to accept one of these offers or continue to line up at Arsenal.”

Despite making 31 appearances (22 starts) for Arsenal in all competitions this season, Elneny’s future is very much up in the air. He only has a contract until 2022, and it seems pretty likely that Arsenal try to sign another midfielder or two this summer.

If they do, Elneny might see his opportunities limited next season. On the other hand, if the club decide against bringing back Dani Ceballos, perhaps there will still be chances for the Egypt international.
